While many of us are aware of distractions outside of the vehicle when we are driving, such as cyclists and pedestrians, what do you know about the potential distractions inside the vehicle?
Well, that’s what we were thinking at The Scrappers – one of the UK’s leading scrapyards and vehicle breakers – as well and fortunately IAM RoadSmart has put together a list of five items that could cause a distraction when driving.
Smoking and vaping
First up is the issue of smoking and vaping while driving. For those who are driving, what happens if you drop your cigarette? What would your focus be and how will the smoke from your vape get in the way of your view of the road?
This is an interesting issue as a distraction since many people see a satnav as being helpful technology. But it’s also another item that causes us to focus less on the road
Comments Off on What you need to know before scrapping your vehicle
If you are thinking about scrapping your car or van, then there may be questions you want to know the answers to before scrapping your vehicle. This article will help.
Most vehicle owners will be scrapping a car for a range of reasons but they will include the fact it’s no longer economical to repair it to become roadworthy or it simply cannot be repaired. Obviously, those vehicles involved in an accident will also be written-off and scrapped.
The easiest and simplest way of scrapping your car is to contact The Scrappers who will offer a price for the vehicle and then ensure it is disposed of legally and efficiently.
This last point cannot be stressed highly enough since unauthorised treatment facilities, that is scrap or breakers’ yards to you and me, may lead to your vehicle being scrapped illegally and leading to you appearing in court.
Comments Off on Is this the future for scrapping cars?
Here at The Scrappers we have many years of experience when it comes to scrapping cars and vans and have established a network of agents around the UK to help us meet the demand for our vehicle scrapping expertise from customers.
There have been a lot of changes in recent years; the laws over scrapping vehicles have tightened and only scrapyards that are Authorised Treatment Facilities can, legally, process a car or van for scrapping.
This means that we have a legal obligation to ensure that the car or van is depolluted properly which means that oils, and also any petrol and antifreeze, are removed from the car and do not damage our environment.
There’s also a need to remove as much from the vehicle that can be recycled or reused and here at The Scrappers we have excellent relationships with overseas customers looking to buy spare parts such as gearboxes and engines from scrapped
Comments Off on How many cars and vans are scrapped in the UK?
In the UK, we scrap nearly two million cars and vans every year but the current popularity of car scrappage schemes from manufacturers will probably see numbers increase.
One news agency asked the 26 manufacturers running schemes how many cars they had scrapped in the last 12 months.
The answer from 12 of them is 14,240 with the other 14 manufacturers refusing to say how many they had accepted from customers wanting a new vehicle when scrapping their car.
Though most say their scrappage scheme has been a huge success, Ford’s scrappage scheme has scrapped more than 8,000 vehicle so far and these have accounted for nearly 60% of all the trade-ins since the firm’s scrappage scheme was brought in.
Another reason why Ford’s scheme is proving popular is that it is offering up to £2,000 off a new car which can be used in conjunction with any other of the Blue Oval’s current offers.
Comments Off on Some of the Everyday Uses for Scrap Metal
Everyone knows that we scrap cars here, and most people will know that doing so creates scrap metal. What fewer people might know, however, is what happens to that scrap metal after it’s been produced. That’s why we’re taking a look at some of the everyday uses for scrap metal in this, our latest blog post.
The Scrappers Ltd have written a blog post before about the environmental benefits of metal recycling, but here we’re delving a little deeper into some of the alternative uses for the leftover metals.
This point is probably the most obvious one we’re going to make, but scrap metal is constantly being reused in packaging for a variety of products. Aluminum is frequently used for drinks cans, for example, even if the idea that you’re drinking out of someone’s car seems a little odd!
Comments Off on Winter Driving Tips: How to Avoid Ending Up in Our Scrap Yard
While we’re all for people coming to us with their old, dysfunctional vehicles, we’re also firmly in favour of safe driving. The last thing we want is to hear from someone who’s been involved in a crash this winter.
For this reason, we’ve put together a list of winter driving tips to help keep you safe on the roads during the festive season. Breaking down in the middle of winter is, for many people, far worse than doing so at any other time of year.

Follow our list of winter driving tips below to ensure you stay safe.
You’re going to need plenty of handy bits and bobs in car during the colder months. For example, travelling in sub-zero temperatures without an ice scraper, de-icer spray, or adequate screenwash is asking for trouble. The first two items
